Furious Real Madrid fans chanted Jose Mourinho's name outside the Bernabeu - and called for Santiago Solari to resign - after crashing out of the Champions League on Tuesday.

Los Blancos were dumped out of Europe's elite competition by Ajax in the last-16 stage after losing 4-1 in front of their stunned home supporters.

After the match, as caught on camera by Spanish publication AS, furious Real Madrid fans staged a protest outside the Bernabeu, and chanted for underfire boss Solari to stand down.

Fans were also heard chanting the name of former manager Jose Mourinho, who is currently out of work after being sacked by Manchester United back in December.

Real Madrid have looked a shadow of themselves this season following Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo's departures.

Julen Lopetegui was Zidane's initial successor but was sacked after just four and a half months following a shocking 5-1 defeat by bitter rivals Barcelona.

Solari has failed to turn Los Blancos fortunes around and is now staring unemployment in the face.

Mourinho has been strongly linked with a return to Real Madrid in recent weeks, and spoke about the club in a recent interview.

He told Deportes Cuatro: "I have fantastic memories. Working at Real Madrid is a unique experience and different to the rest of the clubs I have been at.

"We did fantastic things and we won the league in a unique way. We also had bad moments, I made mistakes, but the experience made me a better manager and person."
